6 Board Games All College Students Need To Play

Board games are some of the best tools for having a good time with friends and making new ones, which is why every college student should have at least one of these in their dorm room.

1. Quelf

This one of the silliest game I have ever played, but it is incredibly fun. On a player’s turn, they roll a dice to advance along the board. Next, they receive a card based on the space they land on and must do what the card says in order to avoid a penalty.

The cards can range in anything from a random trivia question to balancing your shoe on your head, or even breathing like Darth Vader when it is not your turn. It would be best to play with people who you are comfortable doing outlandish acts in front of, such as family or close friends.

2. Killer Bunnies

Although technically a card game, Killer Bunnies still made the list. Each player works to protect their bunnies as they seek the extremely important carrot cards.

The ridiculous card names and crazy power-ups makes this game loads of fun. It is great for people who are not looking for a serious competition, as chance ultimately decides the winner.

3. Settlers of Catan

Often compared to Risk, Settlers is a strategy game of building empires. Players must use resources acquired from the roll of a dice to build cities and roads. You are also able to make deals with other players to trade resources during your turn.

I enjoy this game more than Risk, as it is not a crusher of friendships and the games are significantly shorter.

4. Carcassonne

Named after a French City, this unique strategy game has players take turns placing tiles to build a medieval landscape. Players earn points by placing their meeples (wooden pieces representing a character) to take ownership of cities, roads, and churches.

Points are awarded based on what a player owns. This is the perfect game for those who enjoy strategy and planning their moves ahead.

5. Jenga

The main reason I enjoy Jenga is because of how simple it is. Virtually everyone knows how to play and it is easy to add more people if the game has already started. It is great for those who want to hang out and who want to socialize without interrupting the game.

If plain old Jenga is not your style, try rolling a dice, then remove that number of logs or try removing them with your eyes closed. Both are great ways to make it a lot more interesting.

6. Loaded Questions

In this game, one player draws a card, then reads a question. The other players write down their answer on a piece of paper. One player will then read the answers as the person who asked the questions tries to guess who wrote each one.

The best part about this game is how it can be played with serious answers and allows you to learn more about the people you play with, or, more often than not, can turn into a crude game with hysterical answers.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
